Naples, Florida

Naples, Florida seems to have a never ending stream of activities and attractions for such a small city. While it has a reputation as a playground for the rich, there are many free and low cost adventures. It has all the usual Florida coastal activities such as boating, fishing and beaches but attractions such as its Philharmonic, theatre, arts and museums bring people from around the globe to its shores.

Most locals refer to the area within the city limits as "old Naples" and the remainder of the metropolitan area as "Naples". Old Naples is strikingly different from much of the surrounding area - and from many other Florida coastal areas - because of the many building code restrictions. These restrictions have throttled big developers and left in their wake a charming, peaceful community. Beautiful residential neighborhoods, blending almost seamlessly into tastefully presented commercial areas gives old Naples an old Florida charm that's irresistible. Whether you walk, bike or ride through this area, you'll surrender your heart to this tropical wonderland full of palms, flowers and lush landscapes.

Naples caters to a wide variety of interests and tastes, also. From fabulous 5th Avenue shopping to the beaches and parks on the Gulf and inland to the museums and arts centers to the fishing and boating crowd, there is plenty for everyone. Daytime activities are abundant and if you're still standing after dinner, nightlife is not a problem with theatre, clubs and an assortment of bars and late night dining. This little city packs a big tourism punch and vacation time may not be enough to see and enjoy it all.

For "Beach Nuts", this area provides public access to some great beach attractions through state and local parks as well as through county and city access areas. Lover's Key State Park (just north of Bonita Beach), Barefoot Beach (just south of Bonita Springs) and Delnor Wiggins Pass State Park also have hiking trails and natural areas to explore. Sea turtles, land tortoises and an abundance of sea and land birds provide additional excitement.
